#atozchallenge W is for Water


W is for Water atozchallenge blog post image

 

I open the jar decorated with images of the ocean, as instructed by the strange voice I hear in my head. The jar contains water, a few plants growing from the sandy bottom, and a lobster. The lobster swims to the top and waves a claw at me.

 

Hello there.

 

“Am I dead?”

 

 

“Am I hallucinating?”

 

 

“Am I imagining that I can hear you? Am I imagining you? Is this a dream?”

 

No, no, and no.

 

“Are you my Guardian Spirit?”

 

That’s closer to the truth. I was brought into this world by one who you might consider to be a Guardian Spirit. He bestowed upon me certain gifts. Open the other jar. It contains pure, fresh water. You need to drink.

 

I nod and do as I’m told. I dunk my head into the jar and have a long gulp. I realize that I should have gone with a small sip.

 

You will be okay.

 

“So you aren’t my Guardian Spirit? Did I fail the Vision Quest?”

 

You have not failed. Your Guardian Spirit is within you. It is a very rare trait. You descend from the original Guardian Spirits.

 

“How do you know this?”

 

You could not have entered this place if it were not so.

 

“How do I leave this place?”

 

By knowing that you can. There is a final piece of information that you have come here to learn though. Shall I reveal it?
